What is the difference between the 120 hour program and the shorter 2-4 day classes/ prep tutoring services for Nursing Assistant training?
Good news for students who attend the 120 hour program!
Effective July 1, 2023 if a student comes from an approved 120 hour Nursing Assistant program they will only need to take the written exam for their state test. They will no longer need to take the clinical skills exam! This will significantly reduce your stress levels.
Here's the true story on tutoring/ prep classes:
Many of the tutor prep programs fail to tell the students that medical facilities in Florida which accept federal insurances (Medicare/Medicaid) are required to hire a NA from a 120 hour program. The two to four day tutoring services try to teach you the required 21 skills and a few other items all WITHIN those few days. Therefore, students are not prepared for their state exam due to the amount of information being given to them and fail the state test multiple times. Once they have failed three times those students MUST complete a 120 hour program before being allowed to test again (we receive calls constantly for these students that need help... We can help because we are a licensed and board approved 120 hour program). These schools also do not prepare you to be employable once you graduate. For example, they cannot issue the Alzheimer's/dementia, HIV/AIDS, Restraints, and many other certificates. Many of these schools will not offer BLS or First Aid with their NA classes and require you to pay an additional fee.
Affordable Training is a 120 hour program. Our program also meets the guidelines for medical facilities, which accept federal insurance to hire our students. Our comprehensive program includes 120 hour Nurse Assistant, First Aid, BLS, and many other certifications that make you employable the moment you graduate. The 120 hour program will build your confidence and enforce the knowledge for you to take the state test. We also offer opportunities to come in and review your class materials, and jump in on the current NA class while you are waiting to take your test.

I have learned so much in just a little amount of time my instructor’s name is Brittney and she is the best between her teaching us the material as well to her personality.

The experience at Affordable Training was worth it. Had both my phlebotomy and CNA certifications from here. Always had the best instructors to guide one through the course work, from Ms Kerla to Ms Victoria for phlebotomy, to Ms Brittney and Ms Summer for CNA . Excellent learning experience and very thorough in their tests and examinations. However the student should be ready to put in the work and study, not a place for a lazy student. The instructors are always ready to help and I am very grateful. To Mrs Cindy I say a big thank you for making Affordable Training feel like home, you guys are a magnificent team. Not forgetting the Director Mrs Faye T Evans, God bless you all.
The way they teach helps you make sure you get it down. Very fun and you feel like you're at home there. I miss it already! I recently landed a job at Baptist Beaches all thanks to Brittney, Kayla, and Ms. Cathy and the other teachers that I don't remember their names ( sorry ) Yall are wonderful
I had taken a CNA class, and it was amazing they really take the time to help learn and know exactly what you are doing. And the whole staff are so nice and friendly. And they are the only place that is state certified.
